    replaced my bulb/entire assembly about 3 weeks ago. Now TV randomly turns off, standby light blinks for 20-30 sec, then TV comes back on.

    Problem has happened 6 times over 6 hr period.

    My tv kept shutting off after about an hour. I figured some kind of overheating since it continued after replacing the bulb. There was, in the fan discharge area, a small wire which I thought could be a temperature sensing wire. I moved it out of the compartment and now the tv runs for several hours before it shuts down. Is there some type of temperature sensing device that could be failing?

You will need to replace your bulb.
It costs around $ 300.00 for a new bulb.
After you have installed it, your TV will look new once again.

Sony kf-50XBR800 tv turns itself on and off


I just purchased a replacement lamp off ebay and the TV is working fine now. Color looks better too (which I guess I should have expected). Search for "REPLACEMENT LAMP SONY XL-2100U" on eBay and look for seller "niosales". I paid $129 out the door. Their are other auctions for this lamp you can check out. Make sure you look at lamps that include the entire lamp housing, not just the bulb.

Grand Wega picture going on and off; standby light flashing, sound remains on


Is the cooling fan running properly?  I'm just guessing, but it sounds like it could be overheating and shutting off, which allows it to cool off enough to turn on and overheat all over again.
